Lake Worth, Florida is a large city with 215,808 people. It features only 4 nursing homes, which is fewer than we expected in a city of this size. We awarded the nursing homes in this city a top-notch city grade of A-. Even with a limited number of nursing homes, this is still a great achievement. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the local city of Boynton Beach a city grade of C, which is much lower grade. Naturally, we found the facilities in Lake Worth to be on a whole other level than the ones in Boynton Beach. Lastly, Lake Worth is also one of the top 500 cities in the entire nation.
To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded Lake Worth an A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Lake Worth also excelled in the area of short-term care with a B+. Rounding out its impressive profile, the city received strong grades for our nursing and long-term care categories as well.
